Learn more about DuckDuckGo:
startpage is superior.
ddg has their servers in the us and the dev has sold user data before. also it gives awful search results compared to google/startpage.
why would you trust them when better alternatives exist? i mean, ddg actively advertised on 4chan of all places, that should tell you a lot about the company.
>startpage is superior.
StartPage and Ixquick are good too.

Missing reference, or at least an explanation why you think so.

DuckDuckGo, Ixquick and StartPage are all good search engine alternatives to Google, but stating they're inferior without saying why doesn't make sense.
Really? You're referencing shit posts on 4chan and use them as reputable sources?
This tbhfam. There's a lot I dislike about Google, but I stick around because it provides the most accurate search results.
The first time another service offers the same quality, I am GTFOing from Jewgle.
That's not a botnet. A botnet is a client/server model with malicious intent. Clients get infected, typically without consent of the owner or him being aware thereof, which are called zombies and in turn infected other machines while awaiting commands from the command & control server. This is fundamentally different from you visiting a certain website, because *you* visit the website, and not something else you're infected by.
Saying X is botnet is just another meme you fell for here.
>set duckduckgo or startpage/ixquick to default engine
>search results always show family friendly mormon faggot shit, nothing lewd
>changing settings and saving said settings never works
I know "it just werkz" is a meme but google just werkz. Fuck your autistic shit with .0001% usage.
Put !g before you're search terms, and ddg uses google too. Or !ixquick or !tineye or !startpage or !youtube or !news or !spell or !define. Like a premade keyword for pretty much every search form on the internet.
That's why ddg is useful. Who cares if the search box they offer returns shitty results?
The ssl/https plugin and ddg as your browsers default search= protip.
have you tried turning off safe search
why would i route all of my traffic through ddgs us based servers when firefox and chrome have keyword search (yes, that is what it's called. not "bangs") built in.
>It's a voluntary botnet.
Please, anon. Know when to quit.
I won't, StartPage is fine. Just don't use the usual suspects (Your Google, Bing, Yahoo, and such) if you care for your privacy.
what do you mean by privacy? they can't know who I really am and why would they want? They are not police or whatever, my google account for youtube doesn't have any info that could lead it to physical me.
Google search and Youtube are the only google services i still use.
Am I just not used to it, or is DDG pretty shitty?

The name is never going to catch on
tech startups need buzz to take off. Facebook did it by rolling out to specific colleges first. Google did it by targeting nerds and making their name a verb.
Duck Cuck Bro is not usable as a verb, DDG sucks to say, "duck it" sucks. etc. Just not a good name
well from a point of view of a retarded fuck like you maybe
DUCK means DODGE, DODGE THE FUCKING EYE THAT IS WATCHING YOU
I actually dont care,use what you want just don't start shitposting without any real argument.
ddg.gg/html or ddg.gg/lite if I remember.
I use it but sometimes I have to switch to Google.
I prefer Startpage. I like their ixquick-proxy feature, but their site loads so slowly for me.
Duckduckgo has poorer results but loads quickly and easily and if I'm searching for something easy or simple I will just use DDG because I know I will get results faster. Startpage is sluggish on my connection.
Wow. Even lighter and faster, thanks!
>almost any keyword
firefox works with ANY search, not just 'most of them' and is fully customizable. typing 'y' is faster than typing '!yt', too.
but i digress, you ddg fags will never be convinced
